Mike Mussina pitched seven strong innings and moved ahead of Bob Gibson on baseball's career wins list, and the New York Yankees won again without Alex Rodriguez, beating the Chicago White Sox, 6-4, on Wednesday night.Jorge Posada had four hits, including a career-high three doubles, and drove in two runs. A sore right arm prevented him from starting at catcher for two weeks, but he was behind the plate for the second straight game.

While Rodriguez missed his second game because of a strained quadriceps and the birth of his second daughter, the Yankees matched a season high with their third straight win and Mussina earned his 252nd victory on his third try.
